Property Search Service
We have helped many people find their perfect home or investment property and appreciate the time and energy this crucial process takes for buyers so we also offer a personal search and acquisition service.
Between us, we have had over 20 years of property experience in the Borough of Richmond. As a result, we have an intimate knowledge of the area’s property stock and have developed a wide network of contacts. We are delighted to offer this professional experience to discerning buyers who cannot commit the time personally and would like local, expert assistance to secure the best property. As we are specialists in both sales and lettings and provide a management service we are well placed to advise and assist those wishing to buy to let or just to help find a wonderful home.
We will happily visit you without charge or commitment to discuss this service but in summary our service includes:
- A consultation meeting to ascertain your detailed requirements
- A feasibility report showing recent and historic comparable properties
- Notifications of relevant properties (with an estimate of the rental values, if an investment purchase)
- We will carry out pre-viewings and advise on suitability
- Arranging viewings of the properties you then wish to see (and accompany if required)
- Handle all negotiations and secure the property at the most favourable price
- Assist and monitor the purchase process keeping you fully updated.
- Let and manage investment purchases at a discounted rate.
There is significant work involved in providing a personal search service and to help progress a purchase through to completion, however you should not pay more just because your purchase price is higher, the work involved is the same after all. Therefore, if you retain us to search on your behalf we charge a competitive flat fee of £5000 (+ vat) payable following a successful purchase. We only ask for an initial £500 (+ vat) upon instruction which we refund as a deduction from the full fee should you proceed with the purchase.
"Griffin Stevens were truly fantastic throughout the very stressful process of selling our flat and buying our new home. All members of the team were extremely approachable, informative and professional throughout the process of selling our flat. Andrew was pivotal in managing the chain, going above and beyond. When the other estate agents in the chain went silent Andrew was the key point of contact not only for us but all the other buyers/sellers! If it wasnâ€™t for his patience and communication skills, I doubt we would have managed to sell our flat and buy our dream home. We donâ€™t intend to sell any time soon but if we were to move again Griffin Stevens is the only estate agent we would use; we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an estate agent that are always available, honest and most importantly extremely effective."
